This is a surprisingly (especially when you consider the subject matter) light-hearted take on the Friday the 13th saga, even more so than the previous instalment. In truth there weren't really many ways they could take the series now aside from remaking the same movie over and over, so adding in humour appeared to be the best way to attract audiences. This is by far the most polished of the series so far, with colourful, crisp photography and involved camera-work.Unfortunately, though, in many ways the formula stays the same. The acting is typically bad, aside from Thom Mathews (RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD), who plays Tommy Jarvis this time around. Mathews is pretty good at doing frightened/intense schtick and he's the best person in this film. This film starts off excellently, with a cool scene involving Jason's maggoty corpse being struck by lightning (!) and revived, and then doing a neat pastiche of the James Bond opening titles! Yes, this movie is indeed full of in-jokes and self-referencing in places, like when an old codger mugs to the camera while saying "some folks 'a got some strange ideas of entertainment..."! Jason looks pretty good here, now definitely a zombie - nobody could take the amount of punishment he has over the years, then rot in a coffin for a dozen years and survive. He takes a beating again this time around, and at least the actor playing him actually gives him a (somewhat limited) personality. The death scenes mainly consist of people having their heads crushed between Jason's hands (I take it he enjoyed this particular method of destruction from Part 3 so much he had to try it again), getting decapitated, pulled to pieces, and snapped in two. There's nothing spectacular but at least the film appears to be less butchered than some of the other films. Overall, this episode is fairly slick, sick and enjoyable, and one of the best of the series. Makes a nice surprise from the moronic humour of Part 5 and the deathly-dull retread that Part 4 was.
This is definitely the best and most entertaining friday the 13th movie. Tommy's character is way better than the one in the first movie. I like how he literally insults Jason and has no regret in doing so at the end. This is also the first jason movie where he becomes a zombie and also isn't as serious as the last 4 movies but the comedy isn't as jarring and cringy as Nightmare On Elm Street 2. The kills are great here and there's not too much to discuss here, everything that was great in the other movies is all together here. It's short but it's really fun and enjoyable to watch, you won't be bored.
